MEMBERS of the public can attend the NHS Borders’ Public Board meeting which is being held virtually from 9:00am to 11:00am on Thursday 2 December 2021.

The NHS Borders Board meets every two months to discuss current business as well as receive updates on the activities of committees.

The Board is responsible for providing health care services to protect and improve the health of the people of the Borders and plan services for the local population.

It is committed to forging effective links with all partners, such as patients, staff, local communities and disadvantaged groups, so their needs and views are placed at the heart of the design and delivery of local health services.

Karen Hamilton, Chair of NHS Borders, said: “Our Public Boards are an important opportunity, not only for the Board to discuss current business and performance, but for local communities to be informed and involved in what we do.”

Our Public Board meetings continue to be held online. Members of the public, media and other interested parties who have registered will be able to join via Microsoft Teams. Those who wish to register can contact Iris Bishop, Board Secretary, via for further information.
